How to get Free COVID-19 Test Kits

November 25, 2023

Every U.S. household can again place an order to receive free COVID-19 rapid tests delivered directly to their home. If you haven’t ordered tests since the program reopened in September, you can place two orders for a total of eight tests. Order through COVID Home Tests | USPS. If you need help placing an order, call 1-800-232-0233 (TTY 1-888-720-7489). 

Orders will ship free, so you will never be asked for a credit card or bank account number. You only need to give a name and shipping address. An email address is optional if you would like to track your order through the U.S. Postal Service. Anyone who asks for more information than that is a scammer! No one will call, text, or email you from the federal government to ask for your information to “help” you order free kits. Do not respond, but report it to the Federal Trade Commission at
